UGANDA: What is in a name???
Today I had a chat with a friend in Uganda.
Him: “I am in a meeting with a District Planner”
MLN: “What is its name”?
Him: “I am not sure. I will get it and revert”.
I found it shocking that my friend was in a meeting and did not know the name of the person he was in a meeting with.
Ugandans joke. Learn to memorise people’s names. It is a sign that you respect them.
The Service Industry requires basic courtesy.
When you walk into a restaurant, the hostess introduces herself by name and is usually wearing a name tag. Then your waiter or waitress will come to your table to take your order. This person will introduce himself or herself and will also be wearing a name a tag.
SUDDENLY, you yell “waiter, waiter”. What is wrong with your head? That waiter has a name.
Most waiters and waitresses are working to pay bills. Why not afford them the respect they deserve and not address them by their name? I used to be a waitress when I was doing my undergrad. Should you have disrespected me?
There are many online free hints on how to remember names.
When you address people by their names, you get better service. All my best managers always ask about my kids by name. Stunning. They even know the ages of my kids. Buys loyalty.
